Here is another re-run post for you to ponder. I’ll be offline for the next several days. In my absence please feel free to comment on the post, to each other… I’ll look forward to seeing your discussion when I get back.
Who is your worst critic in general?
Who is your worst critic about your quilting or other crafting?
What does that critic say to you about your quilting or crafting skills and talents?
Do you believe that critic from an intellectual standpoint?
Do you believe the critic from an emotional standpoint?
If the critic is right, do you care?
If the critic is wrong, do you care?
If you care (and want to “improve,”), is there something you are willing to do to address the criticisms?
If you don’t care (or don’t want to “improve,”) is there something you are willing to do to address the critic?
Does the criticism affect your desire to try things?
Who is your biggest fan?
How do you know?
What can you do to get more positive feedback from that fan or others, including yourself?
Will you show up, be big, regardless of the feedback?
Will you listen to this talk by Brené Brown, about the critics in your creative arena? It’s about 20 minutes. I found her affirming and inspiring.
